The Lyrics

In 2003, the Anaheim Angels were sold by the Walt Disney Co. to Arte Moreno. By all measures except re-naming the team, he is a better owner than his Mickey Mouse predecessor. The Angels are currently involved in a lawsuit with the city of Anaheim over this alleged breach of contract.
Did you know
Anaheim has a team that's just sublime?
The Angels, the Angels, the Angels, the Angels
Are now the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Moreno, Moreno, Moreno, Moreno,

Moreno!
My team just got sold to Moreno,
And suddenly its name
Will never be the same
At all.

Moreno!
My team got re-named by Moreno,
Sounds like a legal phrase,
Not like a team that plays
Baseball.

Moreno!
Say it loud and Steinbrenner panics,
Say it soft and you draw more Hispanics.

Moreno!
I'll never stop cursing Moreno
Until he wins the pennant one more time.
Moreno!

Thanks for comments. AFW, sounds like a very good concept for a tribute parody. Larry, I did enjoy your parody of "We Love L.A."
